MOSCOW, July 10 (RAPSI) - The Presnensky District Court of Moscow has issued a ruling in a case on dividing the assets of Norilsk Nickel owner, Vladimir Potanin, and his ex-wife, Natalia, RAPSI reports Friday citing a court representative.
The trial was closed to the public.
According to a source familiar with the lawsuit, the court ruled that Vladimir Potanin keep a 406.9 square meter luxury apartment on Skatertny Pereulok (central Moscow) and a church, St. Blessed Tamara in the village of Anosino, in the Moscow Region.
Natalya Potanina will receive a 380 million ruble ($6.7 mln) compensation for her share in the apartment as well as three plots of land in the Moscow Region.
Also, on July 30, the court will hear Natalia Potanina’s lawsuit on dividing the Norilsk Nickel and Interros shares between the former spouses. In late April, Natalia Potanina filed a lawsuit to assume the ownership of 50 percent of her ex-husband’s stake in Norilsk Nickel and half of Interros International, which holds their other assets, which are considerable.
Earlier, Natalia Potanina announced that she would hand over the management of her Norilsk Nickel shares to the state.
In February 2014, a magistrate ruled in favor of Potanin’s request for divorce. In late June, a court granted Potanin’s petition to change the procedure for the payment of child support on behalf of his underage son. The court allowed Potanin to transfer 50 percent of the agreed upon alimony amount to a deposit account for his son Vasily, 16, until he comes of age.
